How to Say It to Seniors

Geriatric psychologist Solie does an excellent job of debunking the myth that our elders are merely older versions of ourselves. Seniors are undergoing a developmental transition akin to adolescence; practical, effective communication methods are presented to help minimize generational conflict. This, in turn, paves the way for the important work of advocating for (instead of marginalizing) elders, who face a daily struggle for control. Though an age group isn’t numerically defined (it’s more a life stage), this makes an important contribution to our cultural understanding of “seniors” and is highly recommended for public libraries and professional collections. [An optional purchase].
